Downtown Tyler is a cultural and artistic hotspot, and one of the coolest spots is tucked away just north of the square at the Discovery Science Place Museum.

The museum typically attracts kids and young families, but even if you don't have little ones in your life, you should check out their mural. It's colorful and educational. This mural titled 'Peace Through Discovery' is just one of several tucked away in East Texas.

I love it so much that when it was time to take our engagement photos, our photographer, Lindsay Steele, used it as a backdrop. There is a beautiful monarch butterfly depicted. Constellations are illustrated in the photo above, and the solar system reflects it on the opposite wall of the alley.

Lindsay has worked her magic with me a few times. She photographed my bridal portraits, and our wedding day in January.

She is also known for turning regular young women into Disney Princesses.
